    OK, the news does just keep on coming this week..

    SNG Barratt have been kind enough to supply 100 goody bags - meaning some of you will have SNG Barratt bags, some Harwoods bags and some Autoglym bags on the day but all will have a variety of goodies in them for you..

    And they have supplied an incredible two £50 gift vouchers for our prize draw on the day..

    Should all be with me in a couple of days and my home shrinks just that little bit more as we approach our event

    A massive thankyou to them for this.

    OK it's Friday (already?) and it's time for your weekly update on where we are with our 2019 event.

    This week has been quite a week for us, with a lot going on.The biggest issues have been my maths, and our paperwork if I am honest

    We now officially have 116 Jaguars signed up, with over 70 days of potential signups yet to come and this is likely to outstrip my completed print runs of our event paperwork. So over the next week or so I need to get everything topped up from 120 copies to 150.

    I have tried making contact with Pease Pottage Services to confirm things with them, but it appears that the Duty Manager there may have changed, so I am currently waiting on a response to a tweet to Moto Services for an updated email contact.

    Colin from Bag-World.co has very kindly donated some items from his beautiful bespoke range of luggage for our prize draw, due with me shortly, and SNG Barratt are supplying 100 goody bags for everyone along with an incredible £100 in vouchers for the prize draw - also due with me in the next few days.

    Today I need to follow up with last years winner of the Scratchshield Best Turned Out Jag shield, to ensure that they remember to attend this year so they can pass the award to the 2019 winner

    Our Facebook account initially stopped accepting posts earlier this week and then eventually started accepting just short posts - I am hoping this is resolved by the time I post this

    Our event website visitor figures made it into double figures per day for the first time - incredible.

    I will be posting our current stats later on this morning for everyone, as soon as I have had a chance to compile them so please keep an eye on this space....

    A little more news for you this week:

    I have made contact with Robin, who won the prestigeous Scratchshield Best Turned Out Jag award last year and he is already booked with us for this year, and happy to present the award to our 2019 winner, passing it on down the line.

    Additionally the goody bags and incredible £100 of vouchers arrived this morning from SNG Barratt - huge thanks to them for this I really appreciate their generosity.

    On a final note, further to being unable to contact last years contacts at Pease Pottage Services, to confirm our start point I am now trading missed calls and voicemails with their new duty manager - as soon as I have an update on this I will lrt you guys know.

    Ok I have managed to make contact with the new duty manager at Pease Pottage Services and we are booked in, and they are happy to supply the usual discount on Costa products We should have the conservatory on the left side of the building for our time there. I will make a note in the calendar though to call them again a week before the event to double check everything is in place for us though.

    OK, it's been a really busy weekend for our event with the JEC club area starting to fill with JEC members cars, new signups, and we now have Jaguars spanning not just 50 years of production, or even 60, but 81 years of production! Incredible!

    The long range weather forecast is for a mixture of clouds and sun and 20 degrees for the day, which is great news - I will continue monitoring it through to the day though for any changes.

    The sticking point for me this weekend has been the free Welcome Packs - where every year to-date everyone has received a pack with a range of goodies that is consistent for everyone, this year we are bigger than the budget some of our incredible event sponsors have set aside for our event.. so this year you will all have the same info as each other, but the selection of goodies such as samples, freebies etc will be varying from pack to pack - I will nonetheless be working hard to keep everything equal in terms of value for everyone.

    After working through my stocktake, and tallying what I believe our sponsors wilI be happy to donate for our day in total (yep, a leap in the dark based on six years of our event lol) We are limiting the total of attending Jaguars to 160 - just for this year.. next year we are realistically aiming for 200 Jaguars, prior to our anniversay event in 2021 where I am aiming for 300 Jaguars inc European clubs and forums.

    Additionally a raft of ideas have been coming in from attendees, and we should be implementing some of them next year - I am working on how best to implement them currently.

    So to summarise, this has been quite a weekend for us, we have had quite a few new signups, and moving around of where attendees will be on the day, I have hiot a few issues with the Welcome Packs this year and you will have a unique selection of goodies in each bag unlike previous years where everyone had the same, there are new features and ideas in the pipeline for 2020, and 2021 is in the planning stages as the biggest event to-date. The only flip side to all this is that we have a limit of 160 Jaguars this year and we are into limited availability already with 69 days still to go.
